Boott Cotton Mills Museum

This former textile mill is a reminder of the changes the Industrial Revolution brought to Lowell, and to America.

Reviewed By JRF-WS - Winston Salem, North Carolina

I have an even greater appreciation for fabric than I did before visiting. The effects of the cotton industry on women's rights, slavery, labor unions, and the Industrial Revolution are fascinating to explore. You get a small (but very loud) feel for what it was like to work in the cotton mills. Ranger Stephen, and the weavers in the mill room, are extremely knowledgable and passionate about the history of Lowell and the mills. So glad we stumbled on the opportunity to explore this important chapter of US History.

Pinball Wizard Arcade

Reviewed By Miike L - Dracut, Massachusetts

If you want to escape for a little while this may be a good option. They have plenty of pin ball machines, some classics. Can't always tell how many may be working because they are largely mechanical and do tend to break down. They also have video games which you may remember from your earlier years.
When you go in you can buy a bunch of tokens which are accepted in the machines. Just chill out and have fun.

Wamesit Lanes

Reviewed By Gabriel R - Lowell, Massachusetts

I have been here on several occasions. Whether it be date night with the lady, bowling with the friend, or grabbing a drink after work with the guys this place can pretty much cater to anyone. The food is good but basically what you would expect from a bowling alley. Arcade is really nice and uses the new type of load card instead of standard 1990 coin slots.

Have not tried the golf simulators but they are always booked up when I go, so it must be fun!

Make sure you are ready to spend some money though!

Benson Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

Best local place to go cross country running. With just enough trails to get 5m in and enough variety to keep you from getting bored, Bensons is a winner! Lots of different terrain, from woods to field, to marshland, it's a fantastic place to walk,
Picnic, fish or just explore.

Lowell National Historical Park

This park commemorates Lowell's integral part in America's Industrial Revolution.

Reviewed By johnm01453 - Fitchburg, Massachusetts

I remember working in a spinning mill when I was younger. You hear the same noise and can understand what the people went through. The canal ride is a wonderful ride and they explain how Lowell utilized the river. Going thru the locks was fantastic.

Escapology Tewksbury

Tewksbury's first real life escape game! Come and play one of our great games in a private team of 3-6 players. Search carefully for clues, solve the puzzles, unlock the locks and escape to freedom within 60 minutes!

Reviewed By LoriLovesFood - Lowell, Massachusetts

Christina was great when she helped us out when we visited during school vacation. My sister and I and our kids (ages 10 and 12) had a good time. The room we tried to escape from was called TH3 C0D3. Even though the kids struggled a bit, they really enjoyed doing it as well. I think we'll go back and try The Antidote room on a future visit.

Mrs Nelson's Candy House

Reviewed By Bill_123 - Timbuktu, Mali

This quaint, wheel chair accessible shop within a strip-mall provides excellent chocolate at reasonable (not fancy boutique) prices. We loved their milk and dark chocolate more than Connecticut's Munson's and even Belgium's Leonida's We especially liked their malted milk balls and raisinets. Their truffles, however we found not as good as Leonida's. Mrs. Nelson’s according to the cashier does not sell candy on-line, but their mother store in Cornville, Maine called Nelson’s Candies does.

LeLacheur Park

Reviewed By rockcreek_md - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Nothing like minor league summer baseball. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, but it's always fun!

The Spinners staff does a good job keeping a balance between serious baseball watching and a "whatever" atmosphere. Tickets are inexpensive, food is reasonably priced, and there are distractions for kids and silly mid-inning promotions. On Taco Tuesday, a chili pepper and a taco raced around the warning track in go-karts.

If you can't love that, you need help.

Jay Gees Ice Cream & Fun Center

Reviewed By fflbrgst - Massachusetts

As we live right down the street (literally walking distance) we visit JayGee's for ice cream a few times a week in the summer. Huge selection of flavors, good serving sizes. Only drawback are the waiting lines - if someone in front of you orders frappes, your line can stand there without moving for a long time, as each server at a window prepares every item. They'd do a lot better to adopt the method that most places use - dedicated people to make frappes and fill soft-serve orders. 'Place order here' windows and 'pick up order here' windows. Does this mean less tips for the workers? Maybe - they can split the money the way many places do - but the owners need to step up to the plate and pay the high school kids better, too. Never visited the 'fun'house' or done the gokarts (they are more 'kiddy carts') or slider karts or minigolf or batting cages, the ice cream is the draw!

Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center

Visitors center located in the Market Mills complex of the park.

Reviewed By amberapocalypse - Boston, Massachusetts

We did this on a rainy spring break day and it was a perfect activity to spend the day. The visitor center has great information about the area, gifts for purchase, the stamps for your National Park book, a movie viewing room, some exhibits and an interactive kids area. TIP: Ask about parking here, not all the museums have free parking. Also ask here a rundown of directions to the museums if you are walking. Get a map!
